Pennsylvania winters can be harsh on any roof. This is why many local roofing companies recommend creating a fall routine maintenance checklist for your roofing system to get it in tiptop shape before the cold days begin.
Here are some recommended additions to your fall roofing maintenance list.
Asphalt shingle roofs need to be professionally inspected at least once every two to three years. It’s also important to get seasonal maintenance on your roof at least twice a year, typically in the spring and fall. If there are problems on your roof, these regular visits can help you spot and fix them before they become more serious. Contact your local roofers for some timely roofing service.
Clogged gutters are a recipe for disaster. Call your local gutter companies for a cleanup before winter arrives. Fall season is notorious for its falling leaves, some of which may end up blocking the flow of water inside your gutters. If possible, you may also consider a gutter protection system to help prevent this type of problem from occurring again.
As homeowners fire up their furnaces in preparation for winter, ventilating your attic becomes more important. Hot humid air often rises up to the attic, which could lead to slow and gradual moisture damage on your roofing structure. With adequate ventilation, you give the hot air an exit point, avoiding further complications.
Contact your local roofing contractors to address any issues you may have on your roof immediately. The last thing you want in the middle of winter is to have a failing roof that may not get repairs until after the season warms up again.
